Description: Suite of programs for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter
SHARCNET Package information: see GEANT4 software page in web portal
Full list of SHARCNET supported software


Provides a build of geant4 on sharcnet CentOS clusters .


Geant4 comes with many examples useful for testing purposes:

[roberpj@vdi-centos6:/opt/sharcnet/geant4/10.02.02/share/Geant4-10.2.2/examples/extended/analysis] ls 
AnaEx01  AnaEx02  AnaEx03  B1Con  CMakeLists.txt  History  README  shared


Consider the AnaEx01 example as follows:

mkdir -p ~/samples/geant4/test-100202
cd ~/samples/geant4/test-100202
module unload intel
module load ldwrapper gcc/4.9.3 geant4/10.02.02
cp -r /opt/sharcnet/geant4/10.02.02/share/Geant4-10.2.2/examples/extended/analysis/AnaEx01 .
cd AnaEx01
gmake clean_setup
gmake setup

where ...

[roberpj@vdi-centos6:~/samples/geant4/test-100202/AnaEx01] which AnaEx01
